next. ♪ gerri: hello, everybody. i'm gerri willis. signs of desperation for the obama campaign as polls show the president's support eroding. today's objective, young voters. president-elect counted on them to get him elected, but now he is learning that they are not full of hope for him as they were last time. probably because while he is in the white house many young people are still living at their parents' house, facing fewer job opportunities. the president today trying to gin up his base among young voters with interviews at mtv and rolling stone. will it work? here to talk about it top political journalist and commentator, columnist for the new york post and human events editor and radio talk-show host. welcome. great to have you here. i'll go to you first. you know, this in a tv interview we were listening to this afternoon, and the questions are unbelievable of softballs. it's like so, what was your first date with michele like? i mean, is this what passes for journalism with the president? >> i think so. a lot of journalists are on his side, so they're giving him an e
. president obama a four point advantage over governor romney. in the fight for women voters, obama has a commanding lead in ohio but a lot can change of course between now and november 6th. the surprise is what john sununu told me last night is not going to go away. it could become a big problem for romney. sununu, a key romney surrogate, has put race and frankly, charges of racism front and center in the final days of the campaign when romney would have least wanted him to. let's get right to it. i asked him last night about former secretary of state colin powell's endorsement of president obama. this is what sununu said and why it's creating a political firestorm. final question. colin powell has decided to opt for president obama again despite apparently still being a republican. is it time he left the party, do you think? >> well, i'm not sure how important that is. i do like the fact that colin powell's boss, george herbert walker bush, has endorsed mitt romney all along, and frankly, when you take a look at colin powell, you have to wonder whether that's an endorsement based on i

[cheers] >> the placards or different, but the change is still on the agenda. it is just that change takes time, he says. >> you know where i stand and you know i'm willing to make tough decisions even when they are not politically convenient. [cheers and applause] >> the looked like he was enjoying himself, which was not always the case in this campaign. people wondered after he still had a fight in him, after his first debate. he also had good reason to smile. the unexpected backing of new york mayor michael bloomberg, out from managing the city's response to hurricane sandy to endorse president obama. he was not un critical of the president, but he link to the hurricane to climate change and said that the storm has brought tuesday's election into
younger voters went and cast their ballot. the vast majority of them went to barack obama. that is why he has these tail mary's trying to get bruce springsteen and in ohio and iowa, trying t a kid young people up to vote for him. these are not college kids thousands are coming out on college campuses. the mtv was swayed. nike said, you won't have any hard-hitting journalistic questions. will these tactics work? they do, but not to the same degree they did in 2008. gerri: the question is all about whether young people go and vote at the end of the day. something that i think is really important. this new ad with a young girl. she is an actress and a hit series called girls. i want you to listen to this. it's pretty provocative. >> your first time should not be with just anybody. you want to do it with a great guy. is to be with a guy with beautiful, someone who really cares about and understands women. >> my first time voting, it was -- gerri: really? what do you make of this? part of the problem with this for me is that it is yet more evidence that the president is not being presidential.
in general. the polling i have heard, 90% of the african-american vote will go to obama. 80% of women voters will go for obama. and if you want, the other votes, if you are nice about it and give romney 50% of the vote, how can he be so close in the polls? guest: each poll is different. referencing real clear politics, one example of a site that is pretty good as far as bringing pulling together. the question as to how polling is these days -- how accurate polling is these days with one-third of households not having home front anymore. pew charitable trust did a study that indicated 9% of people they're reaching out to our actual responding. in new hampshire, weather is from campaigns or different parties, if you stay home tonight you will get probably on average 5 to 10 phone calls. it gets to the point where you shut your rigor off and you do not even turn on your answering machine. you could be on the phone on my with pollsters. pollsters after this election, as they always do, will boil down things and find out where the margins were, what went right, what went wrong. there are very tal
. >> thank you very much. both mitt romney and barack obama have suspended their schedules just days before the voters make their choice. for more on the storm's impact on this race, i'm joined by the bbc north america editor in florida where president obama was supposed to be campaigning today and bridgette in cleveland, ohio, the state where governor romney was supposed to be stomping today. let's start with you in florida. i'm incredibly jealous. pouring with rain here in washington, d.c. it must feel a world away, both weather-wise and politically. >> yes, it does. we woke up here this morning thinking the president wag going to launch his campaign. we knew this was going to be a big moment with bill clinton rolling out the big guns, if you like, and that was all canceled rather suddenly just as we woke up. so it was really strange knowing he was flying back to cope with a crisis while the rally went on and the normal things you hear at these rallies, the political campaign was going on. and the storm was mentioned by bill clinton but really not heavily. only in passing. and i think peo
% of likely voters nationwide support president obama. 48% say they are voting for theman challenger, mitt romney. and election workers say if-off a vote by mail ballot, you need to take it in by hand or any polling place on election day. that is because for votes to count they have to be received by 8:00 p.m. on tuesday. a postcard showing it was mailed before tuesday is not good enough. >>> it is 8:16 boat owners are being warned to look occupant for activity after a--look out for activity after a series of boat thefts. six boths were stolen last month. here is a picture of a boat the thieves took last sunday. to boats have been recovered but the engines are missing. >>> the time now is 8:17 a new lawsuit is lameclaiming that is man--is claiming that a man a dead bauds [ indiscernible ] was too slow to respond to turn off the power. power lines fell down on to the house of a 55-year-old man back in april. he walked outside and-elect cuted. his family now wants damage. pg and e is calling his death an accident. >>> memorials are being planned for the two pilots who died last month. a serv
. if chris christie and president obama do a good job handling hurricane sandy, voters will like them more. chris christie is a governor of new jersey first, a romney surrogate second. he's got to do a good job for his state. this is an important moment for him to stand on his own two feet. so i'm not that surprised he'd be happy the president is helping him help his state. >> does it prove those kinds of speeches we saw at the rnc, what a bunch of hogwash that is? >> i think their big difference are in health care. mitt romney at some point should come back to the issues. president obama should highlight disagreements with mitt romney on health care issues and other things. i think in terms of the hurricane, it's important that people work together. it's a good thing that we're seeing governor christie are working together on issues people need to see unified government. >> great bipartisanship when it comes to those issues. let's hash out the new round of battleground polling. our poll gives the path six-point lead in iowa. obama three points ahead in wisconsin. that is within the margin
something and with well off voters who admire business acumen, he's a wealthy businessman endorsing obama, so it's key. in terms of coming to new york i think it's a little more intriguing than that. supposedly governor andrew cuomo didn't want him in new york because obama wouldn't allow him to speak at the convention reports have it. so that's what that's all about, but he's going to win new york, so it really isn't very consequential. >> it looks like mitt romney is gaining ground in that aspect. >> i would say that's the most troubling component that bothers the obama campaign even when he was way down, romney, and falling way behind in some of these swing states independents were drifting toward him. now they're up by eight or 10 points and that's -- elections are won with independents because democrats vote for the democrat, republicans vote for the republican and especially well off independents in affluent suburbs that have high voter turnout, that's a very disappointing element for obama. >> is it just us on the east coast or does it feel like this weather event kind of sucked th
obama or mitt romney by a 2 to 1 margin. that's according to a new "time" magazine poll. voters who haven't voted yet are apparently evenly split. john is with me. he's qualified for this because he hailed from ohio. >> my mother and my grandmother still lives there. >> what are you looking for? what conversation are we going to have with those people in ohio? >> it's amazing again it's coming done to ohio and every vote counts. the swing states are the southern area around cincinnati, the area around youngstown, and up into toledo. the whole economic profile of ohio is tied up in the political profile. it's been the manufacturing backbone of the country and it's gotten gutted in the past three decades. >> steel, general manufacturing, and then autos. >> that's right. that's one of the reasons the auto bailout is a big reason in ohio and why it's a benefit to president obama. >> i'm looking forward to riding to ohio with you. we're either going to be great friends or never want to see each other again. your money is going to be live from toledo next saturday at 1:00 p.m. eastern. >>
to likely voters. president obama 44%. governor romney, 51%. why after all this time does governor romney beat president obama when it comes to the question of who could best handle the economy? >> well, first of all, candy, there's a plethora of polls out there. >> a lot of them sort of show this, david. >> i actually prefer the cnn polls. i like the one you put out on friday where we were ahead in ohio and in states like ohio and elsewhere people know the reality, which is the president took tough steps to save our economy from freefall to save the auto industry, which governor romney would not have done, and he has a vision of how to move this economy forward. that will rebuild the middle class. that will -- and governor romney who runs around this country now saying i represent change doesn't represent change. he what he represents is a return to a failed task. >> still more feel think the governor would do better with the economy than the president. >> in that particular poll -- in that particular poll, candy, that may be the case, but in reality that's not the case. if you look at w
tells us voters in the buckeye state really just want it all to be over. >> president obama has a different view. >> reporter: for sue and jack mckitrick, the barrage begins before daybreak. she's undecided. he supports mitt romney. >> the ads are on continuously from 5:00 in the morning until we go to bed at night. >> reporter: an nbc analysis found there's more money being spent in political ads in ohio than in any other state, $185 million so far. that's one-fifth of the national total of $907 million, a figure on track to top $1 billion by election day. in columbus more than 6,600 ads just this month. that's 333 per day. for jack mckitrick it's become background noise. >> after awhile it doesn't do a whole lot. >> reporter: the candidates are spending so much time there, it's as if they're running for president of ohio. a total of 37 days since labor day, 22 of them in ohio. why ohio? voters here picked the winner in every election since 1960. no republican has won without it. the urban north heavy with the auto industry leads democratic, the rule south trends republican. >>
in and he validated barack obama. >> bob shrum, thank you. >>> up next, the war on voters. find out why citizens are facing a growing threat at the polls. and what you can do to fight back on tuesday. >>> and later, tea party extremism takes its toll on key races. stay tuned. >>> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for staying with us. if you're not worried about the election tonight, this story might change your mind a little bit. voter suppression tactics are ramping up. the advancement project reports ohio secretary of state purged 6,000 names from the voter rolls, 38% of the voters turned out to be legitimate. it is not clear why those voters were singled out. we don't know if they'll get to cast a regular ballot on tuesday either. here's another problem for ohio voters. hurricane sandy flooded parts of cuyahoga county. at least 50,000 people still do not have power this day. and if the storm damage doesn't stop voters, the long lines that are developing just might keep them away. it doesn't sound good, doesn it? senator rob portman had to wait in line today. some waited

this is going to be for a lot, a lot of people. >> welcome back to "hardball." that was president obama earlier today. voters are overwhelmingly supportive of his handling of the storm. a "washington post"/abc poll shows 78% give him a positive rating for his efforts these past few days. during his re-election pause, if you call it that, mr. obama reminded americans he has presidential duties and also found a couple unlikely friends along the way, one being new jersey governor chris christie and now tonight a big one, new york mayor plikcle bloomberg. with both sides back to regular base what will sandy's lasting effects be meaning through tuesday? jeff zeleny is a national political correspondent for "the new york times" and howard fineman is the editorial director for "the huffington post" and an msnbc political analyst. let's look at new jersey governor chris christie just last night in a press conference where he continue to lavish praise on the president. let's watch. >> the president of the united states and i have now had six conversations since sunday. that shows to me a level of caring

the minds of undecided voters, where will the presidential nominees be today? president obama says he will not hit the campaign trail until tomorrow, insisting recover from hurricane sandy takes his top priority. today, he visits new jersey to visit one of the areas hardest hit and one of his harshest critics, chris christie. surprisingly, he called the president and government efforts outstanding. mitt romney back on the road in florida. he collected some items for storm victims and called it a show of american spirit. many are hoping to hear more about his opinion about the government's reaction to the storm response. he has avoided those questions so far. maryland had lost two days of the early voting schedule, so officials have decided to extend it one more day. the poles remain open until 9:00 tonight. originally, early voting was scheduled to end on thursday, but it has been extended until friday. for a list of early voting sites around the state, go to our website, wbaltv.com. coming up, two brothers know where to be found this afternoon after they were swept away by flood wate

the polls in ohio, you can see that barack obama is in a lot stronger shape with blue collar voters in that state than he is with blue collar voters elsewhere in the country. why is that? part of that is because of the auto bailout, because they hammered it so hard, because romney was on the other side, and also because the obama team made a decision very early on to go after mitt romney on bain capital, on his business experience, capitalize on his wealth and investments and try to make the case that he's not one of us, and it's been very effective. i don't know if that message comes from obama's loins or from his brain, but it seems to have been working so far. >> good to speak with both of you this morning. >>> it is time now for a check of the morning's other top stories. we're happy to say that jenna wolf will be joining us on saturdays as well as sundays. she's at the news desk this morning. >> good morning to you guys. two penn state administrators face charges. gary schultz and tim curley were arraigned on friday. sandusky, the school's former assistant football coach is ser
